Gumbo Limbo is a beautiful place to stay. We stayed in two of the rooms during our stay as we liked it so much we extended our visit. The views from the property are amazing and the staff and Ale, the host, are all super...More

Gumbo Limbo is a great place to stay if you're looking for peace and quiet amongst the bustling streets of Santa Teresa. Located atop a very steep hill ( would recommend renting a 4x4 ATV because it's a definite hike! ) We got the villa...More

When my wife and I were picking places to go on our honeymoon we blindly landed on picking the lower west coast of Costa Rica's pan-handle, mostly geared towards finding a beach town. After some research on where to stay, we came across Gumbo Limbo....More

About
Description
Gumbo Limbo is a unique bed & breakfast located in the hills of Santa Teresa, just 2 minutes to Santa Teresa beach and town. Along with stunning ocean views, Gumbo Limbo's central, hilltop location provides seclusion- ...More a nice break from the dust and bustle of town, while being only a 2 minute drive to the beach and main road. A 4x4 vehicle, which is generally better for Costa Rica roads, is recommended to reach our property. Each of our villas is surrounded by lush, tropical nature, giving total privacy, comfort, and a real feeling of being in the jungle. From every corner of our property, you can find amazing ocean and mountain views. Our beautiful infinity pool is the perfect spot to relax and watch the best sunsets Santa Teresa has to offer. A full breakfast is included in your stay. It is served each morning in our ocean view dining area. Some of our breakfast options include granola and yogurt with fresh fruits, eggs with gallo pinto, or pancakes, all served with fresh Costa Rican coffee. Our guests are our priority. It comes natural for us to host people and make new friends, so it is our pleasure to cover every small detail and accommodate our guests' needs so that they have the best time while staying with us. Many of our guests have told us that their experience visiting Gumbo Limbo felt more like staying with old friends, than staying at a hotel. Whether it's sharing a surf session or an Argentinean asado together, we look forward to having you!! Less
